Stunning property that was spacious and well equipped.

Many thanks to Paul and Yvette for the welcome box...the clotted cream and scones went down a treat at the end of such a long journey. We found Par an excellent point to explore the south and west coast's and very convenient for the Eden Project.

The most comfortable cottage in a perfect location!

5 of 5
This is our second visit to Sunnyside cottage. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay in Charlestown. It has character and in a perfect location. Walking distance to various eateries & hostelries! ..& of course so close to the wonderful harbour. This year we were lucky to even see a little of Poldark filming. We had trips out to Mevagissey, Truro & St Austell & a shopping trip to the Cornicopia Cornish indoor market. We met the owner Amanda who was lovely and welcoming. Can't wait to return!
